Bible Story Summary

  • The Israelites asked Samuel to give them a king like the nations around them.
  • God told Samuel to warn His people that a king could do whatever he wanted.
  • The Israelites did not care. They said, “Give us a king!”
  • Samuel poured oil on Saul’s head to show that he would be Israel’s first king.

Christ Connection

God gave the Israelites a king, but He had a plan to send His Son, Jesus, to be king over the whole world. Jesus would be the perfect King.

Big Picture Question

Why does sin separate us from God? Because God is holy.

Memory Verse:

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us.” (1 John 1:9)

Additional Resources for Sunday

In Early Childhood ministry, we teach basic biblical truths in ways little hearts can understand, from birth all the way through kindergarten. Our desire is to have children learn in fun and interesting ways how much God loves them. The video and resources on this page are designed for parents to experience this at home with their children.
